We love Coopers!. Their brisket is to die for!. Cole slaw is amazing. However for twi if us for lunch it was $44.00!!!. A bit too much.

I had a sliced brisket sandwich. It wasn't quite done (brisket needs long cooking time), and boy, was it fatty. I felt that the price of the sandwich, a small side and a drink was pretty pricey. Sorry but I wouldn't eat there again.

Great world class BBQ, inside or outside. Must plan a trip through town! Best for your lips! Outdoor cooking at it's best

Great bbq, but a bit expensive for the area. Not much to look at around the restaurant, but interesting decor with lots of hunter's trophies on the walls.

We stopped by due to pumping gas and the smell was amazing. We decided to try it. It was good however we asked for sauce on it and it was almost non existent. No pickles were included either.

Paid $17 for a two meat plate without a drink. Got the brisket and jalapeno sausage along with cole slaw and potato salad. The brisket was very rubbery and almost like eating soggy jerky. Almost broke my knife trying to cut it. Very under seasoned and under smoked. The sausage was decent but nothing special. The sides were very run... More

Not a bad place to grab a quick bite and can attest that the smoked turkey was quite good. A location to grab some BBQ and inside is clean and service fast....

Driving down to the hill country on I10 one good stop has always been Junction Tx . You can stop and fill up, eat, or even stay in some of the little old motels. Coopers BBQ has been down in Llano for years and when they opened this one was very convenient for travelers right off the highway. Service has... More
